The Arab Strategy Forum and Good Judgment Inc are pleased to announce the launch of the Elite Forecasters Challenge, an online forecasting tournament to predict political and economic events in the Middle East, North Africa, and around the world in 2017. Registration is available, for a limited time, to those in the Arab world or with ties to the region:

Co-organised by the Arab Strategy Forum, the region’s leading meeting to forecast short term geopolitical and economic events, the tournament will allow participants to answer forecasting questions in a friendly and competitive environment and track their performance as events unfold.

The top ten performers will be recognized and invited to attend the prestigious Arab Strategy Forum in December 2017 and the Arab Strategy Forum’s Executive Education Programme. They will also be given access to Arab Strategy Forum’s intelligence and reports network. The number one forecaster will be awarded two additional, exclusive prizes: lifetime access to attend the Arab Strategy Forum and USD 100,000 commission to write a report for the 2018 Arab Strategy Forum.

All participants will earn the satisfaction of being part of an exclusive cadre of forecasters contributing to the ASF’s core mission, while also honing their own critical thinking skills. According to Good Judgment Inc co-founder and best-selling author of Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction Philip E. Tetlock, improved powers of prediction can help individuals to better understand the world and approach daily life with more clarity. Good Judgment Inc helps governments and organizations all over the world sharpen and improve their forecasting skills through training and tournaments like this one.
